Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to gastroesophageal reflux disease.

I suggest using antacids such as Maalox three times a day.

I also recommend using Omeprazole 20 mg in the morning before breakfast.

I suggest to avoid food that can trigger the symptoms and avoid eating before sleeping

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contappct me again.

Kind regards!
